Find National Targets

The national targets (or equivalent) presented in this database are taken from the NBSAPs received since COP-10, fifth national reports or separate submissions and provide examples of national targets established by Parties that contribute to the implementation of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. The mapping of national targets to the Aichi Biodiversity Targets by the Party concerned is indicated in the last column “Related Aichi Target(s)”. All Parties are encouraged to undertake this mapping exercise and to submit this information to SCBD for incorporation in this database.

In addition, national biodiversity targets (primarily quantitative), and other relevant targets, for 2010 and beyond 2010, based on the information provided in the fourth national reports and other related information published by countries, are available here. Although these targets have not been specifically established within the framework of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, certain national targets can nevertheless be linked to the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and the 2020 implementation framework.
